Special teams failures took Capitals' teeth away in Game 3

Special teams failures took Capitals' teeth away in Game 3

According to the Washington Post, Qatar will pony up $100,000 of sweet cheddar so that our capital's subway system will be open one hour later than normal after the Washington Capitals' playoff game tonight in the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals. It does not make exceptions for sports games, so if a game goes into overtime or extra innings, it could leave loyal fans needing a different ride home.

"We're here for a reason".

The Capitals enter Tuesday's game with a 2-0 series lead over the Lightning.

Victor Hedman figured all the Tampa Bay Lightning needed to get back on track was a shift in momentum.

The Bolts get a power play.

Eller's first penalty led to Tampa Bay's second goal, via Nikita Kucherov. "[Kucherov] and [my] shots are those ones where it just comes off the stick and you know it feels really good".




"I'm put in a position to produce, and I put that pressure on myself to do it", said Hedman, who has a goal and 10 assists during an eight-game point streak.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights, meanwhile, are slight favorites over their Western Conference opponents, the Winnipeg Jets, even though the latter has more first-line firepower and the series is even at 1-1. "It's just so much better to play with the lead".

Alexander Ovechkin took nine shots and Kuznetsov took 12, both more than the leading Tampa shooter, Kucherov, who only had six. Braden Holtby made 33 saves for Washington and has stopped 52 of 56 shots in two games, winning the goaltending battle with Andrei Vasilevskiy.

The Capitals have also played without Andre Burakovsky for the last four games of their first-round win over the Blue Jackets and the entire Penguins series, while Tom Wilson was suspended for Games 4-6 against the Penguins. Vasilevskiy covered every other puck and time wound down on the Lightning's 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals. Coach Barry Trotz continues to call Backstrom day-to-day.

Washington controlled the pace of play in the first period, drawing oohs and ahs from their fans in Capital One Arena. "We didn't get 113 points by playing that way".

He had to be particularly good late in the game after Evgeny Kuznetsov (no surprise) found paydirt from a dirty angle for his sixth point in the series with Washington's net empty. "We haven't had to really deal with that so far in the playoffs". Cooper explained the difference in his goalie's peformances from the first two games to tonight. We rely on him a ton, he's a horse and most nights if he's going well, we're going well as a team.
